Where our wheels go
When I went to my MyDish account a couple of days ago, it wouldn't accept my password. I used the "Forgot password" link to create a new password, and it required a stronger password than previously required. Apparently there's been an unannounced change to increase password security, possibly due to a software update. Those with stronger passwords already would not be affected of course. A notice on the login page would have been nice...

Nope, that's not it. I just logged in with no problems. My password is 1234.

I had to make a new password and then add a special character also now i can log in. However that special character seems to be a requirement. hmm.

Yep, that and an upper case character were the new requirements that I saw. Oh, and an 8+ character count, but I don't know if that was new or not.

There was a recent change that now requires you to include a special character.

The upper case requirement must be new as well, since my old password was all lower case but the new one required mixed case plus the special character.

Not surprising. I only have a few accounts requiring just 8 characters without upper case and special characters. I have one requiring 13 characters(passphrase).
